    Default Profiling tendon

    Just wondering what the protocol for healing a profiling tendon, I've been out of the rehabbing world for a bit, I know the vet will know, just wondering what worked for some more than others???
    TIA

    I have never heard the term "profiling tendon" before. Can you elaborate?

    Do you mean a Bow that has a big Profile? Or a tendon that has filling creating a profile? Or a tendon that has been struck and has a bit of a profile from a internal bleed?

    Never heard that terminology, can you elaborate, or translate into English?

    Ditto here! ?????
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Sorry probably race track terminology, found out there is a 25% tear in the deep dft, I am awaiting email results, and a consult with the vet. This horse is well worth the rehab!

    Not something I have ever heard of at the track or elsewhere. If you have a tear, you have a bow. I really liked cool cast for new bows, I kept one in the fridge at the track just in case. You can splash it with alcohol to reactivate it after it has dried out or take it off to cold hose or ice and put a new one on. http://www.bigdweb.com/Cool-Cast-Ban...ductinfo/1311/

    Yeah, not something I ever heard in years of doing track lay-ups, either. (Pro)filing that away in the memory bank

    Obviously follow your vet's advice, but it's hard to go wrong with cold for a fairly fresh injury. A good pair of ice boots/cold wraps applied for 15-20 minutes 2-4 times a day, with a standing wrap on in between to keep some pressure on and prevent fluid from accumulating in the lesion worked well for me, perhaps paired with a topical anti-inflammatory. I usually hand grazed when I had a horse in ice boots if I had time (and they would behave) so they weren't getting so bored in their stall. Good luck!
